Guide to Kegel Ball/Ben Wa Balls Exercises and Care
Ben wa balls or Kegel balls are weighted balls designed to strengthen your pelvic muscles which leads to stronger, more intense orgasms and improve incontinence. These balls range in size from 1 to 2 inches in diameter. Kegel balls are made out of metal, glass, medical grade silicone or ABS plastic. The exercises can be done on the floor, in the shower or anywhere in the house.
Beginners may find plastic or silicone kegel balls easier to work with.
Light-weighted – better for beginners
Weighted – better for experienced users or increasing strength
Adjustable weights – most versatile between sex and health goals
With cords – easier to remove
Without cords – easier to use during sex
Beginner balls – some models, like Duotone balls are made specifically for beginners
It is recommended to apply a little water-based lubricant when using the kegel balls to help with insertion and removal. Once the kegel balls are in, you should be able to sit up and move around depending on your ability. Once you gain more experience, you should be able to insert them without having to lay down.
Create a regular kegel exercise routine. Once you use the kegel balls regularly, you will be able to determine if you need to graduate to the next size or weight.
1. Apply lubricant on the balls to help glide them in.
2. While laying down on your back, insert the kegel balls into your vagina while in a relaxed position.
3. Squeeze your pelvic floor muscles with the balls inside and hold them for 5 minutes at a time.
4. Release and repeat a few more times.
Clean your balls with warm water and mild soap after each use. If you’re using balls that are attached via a string or silicone coating of some kind take the time to disassemble them as much as possible and thoroughly wash around the connections. Unattached metal or glass balls are the easiest to clean.
Be careful to clean around any nooks and crannies where fluids could get trapped.
Also, be wary of the cord material.
Sanitizing is also a good idea (depending on what the toy material is, read the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning instructions).
